    ‘We’ve Not Endorsed Sanwo-Olu For Second Term’

    A member of the Governor’s Advisory Council (GAC) has denied reports that Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State has been endorsed for a second term.

    The GAC member who spoke on the condition of anonymity was reacting to reports that the governor had received the council’s backing for re-election.

    Naija News understands that the GAC is the highest decision making organ of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the South West state.

    In a chat with Daily Trust, the GAC member said that the council has not made a decision on the governor’s reelection, adding that the body has not met for a while.

    He said the governor was already getting the endorsement of some groups in the party in the state, adding that Sanwo-Olu deserves a second term.

    The APC members, however, asked members of the party to exercise patience on the governor’s re-election bid.

    He said: “I am surprised to read a report that GAC has endorsed Sanwo-Olu for a second term. There is absolutely nothing like that. GAC has not met for some time now on the issue of the second term.

    “He is already getting the endorsement of some divisions in Lagos. Ikorodu people recently endorsed him for a second term, I am aware when he came to commission some projects in the zone. But he needs the support of all the divisions in Lagos and all the GAC members in these zones would have to endorse him. Until then, we just need to exercise some patience.”
